Did you try to configure access control on your repository? You can do
that by setting

auth-access =
anon-access =

in your svnserve.conf. I was under the impression that you have a
password file to specify passwords for use with users. Also, svnserve
1.3.x support path based access, so that you can allow certain groups
of users read access while others are granted write access.

Which svnserve version are you running?
